A program of Arts Midwest, the Arts Midwest Conference is the preeminent booking and educational conference for the Midwest performing arts industry. Attended by nearly 1,000 performing artists, managers, and agents; performing arts presenters/venues; and arts administrators from throughout the United States and beyond, the four-day conference is filled with opportunities to network, learn, and experience live performing arts.
- Access some of the best performing artists in the nation in our high-energy Marketplace, where the business of booking happens. Much of what Midwest audiences will see on stages in the 2016—2017 performing arts season will be discussed in the 2015 Marketplace.
- See and be seen at a wide variety of live performances — promote your or your artists’ work and make new connections that are perfect for your audience or community.
- Discover innovative ideas, leadership development, and skill-building opportunities at our professional development sessions. We offer something for all attendees, whether you’re interested in the details of the industry or in big-picture questions about our evolving performing arts field.
The Conference serves the 15 states represented by Arts Midwest and our sister regional arts organization Mid-America Arts Alliance. Learn more about our partnerships.
